"I created two hundred and fifty designs with old Cretan, countryside and Minoan motifs trying to unite what is beautiful with what is beneficial."
Florentini Kaloutsis

It is not an easy decision to organize an exhibition of art and crafts in a Gallery, even if it is about a historically recognizable figure, such as the Cretan painter and designer Florentini Skouloudis-Kaloutsis.

The peculiarity and complexity of her manifold artistic activity need to be comprehended. It is essential to take into account her gender as well as the context of her activity, so that stereotypes – such as the issue of “folk” art that follows her work and its national/local “benefit” that continues to fuel our national identity myths – are put under the microscope of critical reflection. Now, however, 130 years after her birth, we believe that the time is ripe for a sober historical reassessment of her work and, through it, of our modern cultural history and heritage.

Curator: Manolis Karterakis & Ani Kontogiorgi

Opening: Monday, 2 December 2019, at 20:00 The Municipal Art Gallery of Chania presents exhibition with works of the Cretan painter and designer, Florentini Skouloudis-Kaloutsis.
